Me and my husband were there one weekend. The spa is nice but not that big I expected. It's also full of children so if you want to relax in peace, it's not maybe the best option but children love the place. So it's extremely good for families. We didn't try Angry Birds activity park or ice skating hall but... More

We took a last-minute offer, a week in a so called villa-room. A pleasant surprise, although the villas I&II are in a block of flats. Fantastic fully-equipped kitchenette, proper sauna, and best of all things was the balcony - it was huge, with nice sitting-group. If you choose the villas 1or2, be sure to ask for a view... since you... More

Relaxing spa facilities, fun waterpark area. The rooms are fresh and clean - we stayed in the Castle part and were pleased with amenities. The outdoor park area is quite nice and beautiful. Great for a weekend getaway near Lappeenranta.

The complex consists of two main buildings: modern Gantt house (rooms have authentic Gantt homeware) and the romantic Castle side with the reception between them. It is big enough not to appear crowded even when fully booked. The spa is open between 9-21 hours and is free of charge for the hotel guests. During the day and early evening it... More

Overall my wife and I, with three young kids had an enjoyable time at the Holiday Club Saimaa. However, there would be things to point out to the would-be visitor: 1. The Villas are quite new.

Interesting place, huge, good facilities. Consists of several buildings with 3 different types of rooms. We had a Gant room, which is the best in terms of design and accessibility, but it had no fridge - that's the only disadvantage. The other rooms are kitschy "romantic" rooms in the former facility for the mentally ill :-) and family rooms -... More

A lot of activities for your whole family to choose from. Also many places to go and eat. Villas are good option for a family still enabling breakfast to be served for you and overall full service treatment. Nice place to visit and will go there another time as well.
